3com Vlans & WAP for multiple (20) offices and shared Internet
Posted on 2007-08-11
I need so help configuring a 3com 4500 switch and a watchguard X550e firewall to do the following:
The customer has an office building with 20 seperate business that need Internet access and VOIP capability. We are installing a mitel VOIP phone system for all offices as well.
We need to create a seperate Vlan for data (& connection to the Internet through the Watchguard Firewall) for each office. We would like to use the 3com's Auto oice VPN for the IP Phones. We will also be providing some hosted servers that the Data Vlans will need access to (A seperate "Server farm" Vlan).
The customer would also like to provide wireless access for each office as well as a Public (Open) WIFIi connection for the conference room. We will use 3 com 8760 WAPs for this, but I'm not sure how to get the appropriate wireless clients into their respective vlans. Is this even possiple?
Ideally all Vlan clients would get their IP address form the DHCP server in the watchguard, but Don't think the Watchguard can handle that.
